Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing such nice comments. This is fishing territory in one of America's most beautiful and cleanest lakes. Expect hardly no traffic on this lake, even during the peak summer season. Rose is a wonderful person and does a great job keeping our places clean. Guests can always expect a clean property when staying at any of our Watauga lake properties. Come visit Watauga lake today / alakecabin4u

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister and myself recently stayed at the Bass Bungalow and had such a great time! As stated the cabin was well stocked with towels and toiletry supplies. It was such a nicely kept and clean spot. We very much enjoyed the use of the canoe. We used it each day to paddle along the lake and find nice spots to hang out. The view was fantastic. We enjoyed watching the sun rise and set on the covered porch. The hot tub was nice and hot and clean as well. In the evening time we liked having a reliable WiFi signal to use our devices to post all the pictures we took. When we had a question, I emailed the address listed and received a response within 10 minutes. We cannot wait to stay with you guys again next year!

Wake forest

The view of the home was beautiful, however the home was dirty with bugs, spiders, ect.

  • 1 of 5

I know I'm in the mountains, however for the money I expected my TV remotes to work, blinds to work, hot tub to be scum free (did not even use it) and no spiders in my sheets. I have stayed in the mountains before and never have I been so disappointed.

Owner's Response: So sorry to hear of your disappointment. Yes, up here in the mountains this time of year that are lots of ants around the cabin. The exterminator came right out and got rid of them. Thanks too for getting new batteries for the remote. You just never know when they'll go dead. We leave new batteries in the kitchen draw but of course they walk off and disappear. Happy to reimburse you for the purchase. Hope your next stay is better.
